AET REMOULD’s new watch, Lochagos, is a clever presentation of the Spartan spirit

German factory AET REMOULD released a new watch work, inspired by the Spartan spirit. The biggest difference for the brand is that this is their newly opened new product line. Previously, they mainly remodeled Richard Mille and Rolex Daytona. This new work is based on Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore. A high-end watch.

The new work, titled “Lochagos”, is the first work in AET REMOULD’s “Spartan Series”. About Sparta, we can get a glimpse of it in many modern art and entertainment works, such as the movie “Spartan 300 Warriors”, the game “Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey” and the “God of War” series, which are all developed around Spartan warriors story.

Today, people’s interpretation of the Spartan spirit is more about conveying bravery, boldness and masculinity, and the large case size of the Lochagos watch fits this concept very well. The case, bezel, dial and bottom cover of the watch are all made of sapphire crystal, and the visual perception is very pure, which is also the consistent watch style of AET REMOULD.

In terms of design, the dial uses bright color graffiti – red and yellow. The chronograph scale ring on the edge of the dial, the edge and pointer of the small dial, and the central second hand are all covered with red, and irregular graffiti of red and yellow have been added to many places on the dial, making the overall look more flexible and delicate.

According to the official statement of AET REMOULD, the pattern on the edge of the small dial at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock on the dial refers to the shield design of the Spartan warriors. In many descriptions of Spartan warriors, their shields are usually round wooden shapes about one meter in diameter, and the warriors will paint a layer of bronze on the outside and make some special marks. The geometric pattern used on the small dial of the Lochagos cheap watches for sale is one of the special marks of the Spartan warrior’s shield, and the black and yellow color scheme it matches also presents a majestic feeling.

It is worth mentioning that the AET REMOULD LOGO logo is added to the tail of the second hand in the center of the dial, and there is also the “AET REMOULD” brand logo next to the date window. Not only that, the AET REMOULD LOGO design is also added to the crown position, which is very personalized for the brand, and the combination of metal + crystal used in the crown further enhances the texture.

The watch is equipped with a fluororubber strap and is limited. As a brand new product line of AET REMOULD, the new Lochagos watch brings a very wild and flamboyant design style. Against the background of the pure sapphire crystal case, it can better highlight the tough and unrestrained character of the Spartan warrior. It is one of the best items of the year for large-sized watch lovers.

Greubel Forsey BALANCIER S (Titanium)

In 2019, Greubel Forsey introduced the GMT Sport, which features a new case architecture that combines sculptural lines for ergonomics, robustness and comfort. Continuing their passion for exploring new paths, creative watchmakers Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey present their new sports watch, the BALANCIER S in titanium.

The BALANCIER S timepiece reinterprets a unique case that showcases a new movement. The case is round, with a distinctive domed oval shape from other angles, with integrated lugs and strap, and a satin bezel engraved with Greubel Forsey’s key values. The new “Balancier S” achieves a slim profile that enhances its dynamic new dynamics.

The rubber crown and strap with rubber inserts ensure excellent grip and protection of the timepiece. The oval domed sapphire crystal follows the curvature of the case. The bold double-suspended arched bridges carry the sloping gear train and the curved central hour and minute hands, technically and visually emphasizing the perfect penetration between the case and the movement. These striking elements are integrated and extended to the inclined balance wheel, giving the watch a strong identity while ensuring its outstanding timekeeping performance.

The large inclined balance wheel at 7 o’clock stands out. The overarching goal is to improve the chronograph function, which maximises the space provided by the domed case and sapphire crystal, linking form and function. In their relentless pursuit of precision and performance, Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey have challenged timekeeping, notably with the 24-second tourbillon, quadruple tourbillon and 30° double tourbillon Tourbillon reinvents the tourbillon mechanism. They opted for a new approach here, based on the large balance wheel introduced in 2016.

Completely developed and manufactured in the replica Greubel Forsey studio, this balance wheel, with its extra large diameter of 12.6 mm, ensures excellent timekeeping performance. For fine chronometric adjustment of the moment of inertia, the balance rim is fitted with six gold adjusting screws, embedded to limit air friction. For the first time in this new hand-wound movement, for which multiple patents have been filed, the imposing Greubel Forsey balance is inclined for the first time.

This 30° angle relative to the horizontal plane of the movement proved to be an excellent solution for limiting timing errors due to the effect of gravity on the regulating mechanisms (balance, spring and escapement) that stabilize the position. Combined with a large-diameter balance wheel and a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour, it provides this timepiece with exceptional timekeeping performance – which is also conspicuous in operation thanks to the unique movement architecture.

Mounted in tandem with two coaxial barrels, the 308-part movement has a 72-hour chronograph power reserve, displayed on a sector at 2 o’clock using a skeletonized red-tipped hand. Central hours and minutes display with contoured and skeletonised hands in polished stainless steel, with small seconds on the escapement bevel at 8 o’clock, emphasising the depth and relief of this new movement. copy watch

In keeping with the innovative spirit of Greubel Forsey, technical and architectural innovations are accomplished through unconditional care and craftsmanship for all components of the movement. Greubel Forsey Atelier has mastered this traditional and irreplaceable craftsmanship – frosted, polished beveled and countersunk, rounded and ruled grained to accentuate even the smallest surfaces.

The hand-finishing of titanium for mainplates and bridges has proven to be much more difficult than steel or even nickel-silver, and further adds to the technical and aesthetic challenges this timepiece represents.

Made of titanium, the Balancier S is water-resistant to 100 meters, and its sporty and powerful case shape is distinguished by its lightness and comfort on the wrist. Its robustness protects the movement, especially its large balance wheel, which has been tested in the Greubel Forsey EWT laboratory to ensure its reliability and timekeeping performance at all times. A flexible and durable rubber strap enhances the sporty feel, and a titanium folding clasp provides all the comfort.
